The Civil War has come to an end, yet things are still not easy for Kyzer. It is now 1870, and the son of Delilah continues his life in the small town of Hastings, Virginia. Kyzer's beautiful wife, Dellanna, has been dead for six months. Despite his personal grief, he finds the strength to be a loving father and continue to support his mother and a person of color who is now a member of the family.
Soon, an old friend from Kyzer's Civil War days arrives in Hastings and changes the direction of the entire family's life. Kyzer must make a choice: will he continue his haunted struggles in Virginia or move his family yet again? But how will his children handle the relocation, and will Kyzer be able to find a stable way to support them?
Amidst obstacles and challenges, Kyzer will keep his weakened family together. Unexpected conflicts threaten to tear them apart, but Kyzer's strength goes to show that nothing is as powerful as the love of a father for his children. In a world still reeling from war, it is love, not hate, which conquers all.
